In case you haven't yet heard — and maybe you didn't, because the man himself is so utterly modest — it seems Donald Trump was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday. As the AP's Sandy Cohen (who, we guess, is pursuing a new career now that The O.C. is coming to an end) reports, the real-estate mogul, holding his littlest apprentice, Barron, "was asked, and asked, and asked about Rosie O'Donnell. But the billionaire developer said he is finished with the feud." And we can only suspect it's because he's played his, er, Trump card. Though O'Donnell acted in such movies as A League of Their Own, Now and Then, and The Flintstones and even hosted her own cutie-patootie talk show for a time, the controversial Viewer does not have a star. Naturally, we wondered why only one name-calling New Yorker made the cut, so we turned our attention to the most recent honoree. Suddenly, it all made sense. Inspired by their new addition of Hilary Swank, the Walk of Fame people obviously got ambitious: They inducted a billion-dollar baby. — Lori Fradkin
